Since the workshop my understanding about using story to spark people’s interest, and even shift their perspective has strengthened and grown. Jenni’s encouraging way of teaching allowed us to transform our own stories. If we are to create the change needed to protect our natural world, connecting with one another through story is the only way we will do it.
Just wanted to say thanks so much for the workshop on Saturday. I really enjoyed it. You are such a good and natural facilitator who knows your content so well because you live it. Thanks for creating such a lovely atmosphere and sparking many interesting insights and learnings for me.
In August 2017, I participated in a storytelling workshop facilitated by Jenni Cargill-Strong. The event was both insightful and inspiring and gave me the confidence to experiment with new ways to share information and encourage participation in Landcare. In October 2017 I was selected as a speaker at the NSW Landcare Conference in Albury. I mustered the courage to apply my newfound storytelling skills and methodology through my delivery. The presentation was extremely successful with multiple people approaching me afterward commenting on the presentation style as engaging and refreshing. Thanks to Jenni I have now found my style and my confidence to present to large audiences and trust that my stories will embed in peoples memory.
